My favorite cartoonist - Jimmy.
Jimmy, a painter from Taiwan province of our country, he is one of my favorite cartoonists. When I failed in the first college entrance examination, his work encouraged me and gave me the strength to continue to work hard.
As a best-selling author of picture books, Jimmy continues to assert control over his life. He works only on projects that inspire him and refuses to let fame limit his freedom. However, as sure as Jimmy is of his own path, he is sensitive that for others, freedom presents its own problems. In a world of infinite possibilities, choice can seem overwhelming. 
This idea is represented in Jimmy's books, somewhere the small scale of his characters expresses the powerlessness they feel when facing choices. The message contained in the brief explanations that accompany Jimmy's drawings, however, is hopeful: Though the world may make us feel small, we must be brave. Everything will be all right for us—as it is for the small people in Jimmy's books—if we make appropriate choices. 
Despite his newfound fame and wealth, Jimmy prefers working quietly at home with his wife and daughter. He spends his mornings drawing, and his afternoons doing chi-gong. To Jimmy, the freedom to live his life as he chooses, meaning much more than money and attention ever could.

Everything will be all right for us—as it is for the small people in Jimmy's books—if we make appropriate choices.
